  1. Neurotoxin and Cytotoxin Detection in Water Supplies During Sample Collection

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: C3NCERPC

    There has been an alarming increase in toxic cyanobacteria over the past 2 decades, with numerous poisonings reported from Australia to the United States. The increased toxic risks led the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to include cyanotoxins on the 1998 Contaminant Candidate List. Most cyanobacterial blooms, however, are not toxic. Furthermore, bloom toxicity will change o ...

  3. Ultra-Sensitive Toxic Chemical Detector

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: C3NCERA4

    The ability to detect and identify trace quantities of hazardous materials has become a significant requirement for protecting the population during the war on terrorism. However, the ability to detect and identify trace concentrations of a wide range of chemicals in the field using a man-portable instrument is severely limited. The ability to quickly and reliably identify toxic indust ...

  4. Self-Regenerating Filters for Decontamination of Chemical and Biological Agents in Building Ventilation Systems

    SBC: Science, Math & Engineering, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA4

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified the need to protect buildings from chemical/biological assaults. Science, Math & Engineering, Inc., proposes to develop innovative, self-regenerating filters that combine filter media and ultraviolet radiation to neutralize and remove both chemical and biological agents in building ventilation systems. The goals of this Phase ...

  7. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptamer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: C3NCERB4

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SE ...

  8. Novel Ceramic Membrane Bioreactor for Low Flow Systems

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: C3NCERC1

    Improved low-flow (50,000 gallons per day) sanitary wastewater treatment systems are needed. CeraMem Corporation's proposed approach includes a membrane bioreactor (MBR) using fully proven biological processes for biological oxygen demand oxidation and (optionally) for nutrient removal (i.e., denitrification and phosphorus removal). The technology has as a key inventive element—a ...

  10. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C3NCERD1

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and lo ...
